The first day of each week, all students and teachers from elementary and middle school come together in our courtyard for a flag raising ceremony and flag salute. Our color guard, made up of 4th – 8th graders, under the direction of Mr. Mike, raise first the U.S. flag, followed by the Nevada flag, then finally our HIS flag, while the Star Spangled Banner plays over the sound system. Finally, one of the color guard leads the entire school in the flag salute.
This is one of the ways that we bring together students across grades and divisions to share in a community experience, in this case one in which we start the week honoring and appreciating this beautiful nation that affords us our liberty and privileges.
For families that have not yet done so, we hope you can join us one Monday morning at 7:50am to experience this ceremony.
Mr. John Heffron, Lower School Principal
